Tuesday Night Grab Bag O’ Thoughts

It’s an all-new year of thoughts. Let’s roll !

1.  The Twelve Days And Nights Of Christmas ended yesterday, and today is Epiphany. I learned all about this Christian holiday way back in 1974 and 1975 in Catholic School. Most people I know have never heard of it.

2.  From my parking space at home to my parking space at work the length is exactly 7.2 miles by road. That’s 11.6 kilometers for the rest of the world. At the dangerous intersection of Speedway Boulevard and North Canal Drive I am exactly halfway to work – or halfway to home.

3.  In just 32 days I’ll be on a luxurious Carnival cruise sailing across the Great Gulf Of Mexico. It’ll be my first cruise in nearly 15 months since I sailed across the Great Atlantic Ocean from Rome Italy to Miami Florida. This blog will actually go on hiatus during that upcoming vacation. A continuous streak of 445 days in a row with at least one blog entry posted per day will come to an abrupt end.

4.  Last Presidents Day Weekend I went on a short little road trip over to the southwest coast of Florida. I had contemplated visiting Cypress Gardens for this Presidents Day Weekend, but alas they have shut down yet again due to poor business. They do plan to reopen again this Spring as a smaller park – minus all of the amusement park rides and all of the zoo animals.

5.  Speaking of zoo animals I plan to visit Miami Metro Zoo on a future Saturday morning real soon to do a special ‘on-location’ edition of ‘The Major’s Walk-A-Thon’. I like to check up on the animals over there every few years or so – when the weather is cooler outside no doubt.

Those are my thoughts on this Epiphany. I thank you for your time !

    Alone. I’ve had this particular cruise booked since the middle of last year.

    Yo! You can’t let your cosecutive streak end! Imagine if Fox News one day decides they are going to shut off the station for a few days because Sean Hannity goes on vacation. Don’t do that to us!
